in casu after nato troops brutally dispersed a crowd of serbian protestors at a makeshift roadblock witnesses say the troops fired a live ammunition at peaceful demonstrators and have now established a forceful presence in the area are dislikes here cesky is in the hot spot and sends us this report on friday the case for troops removed one of the barricades which. also was set up in order to block the police and the k. four troops from gaining access to the area and we understand that more than one hundred k. four troops came over there pointed their guns at the serbs bloke aiding this particular area and ordered them that they should leave the serbs obeyed and retreated peacefully with no violence and set up another a manmade checkpoint they put two large trucks on a bridge thus blocking the road the access for troops into the northern part of course there was still more than seven people remain in local hospitals in me that
4:02 am
i would say in the town of. after being injured into these clashes with the k. four troops we managed to pay them a visit and ask them what exactly happened on tuesday. we were standing by the barricade when the soldiers started shouting and shooting at us i didn't know what they were shooting with so i got scared and started running away and i was hit on the shoulder and it turned out to be a perforated my lungs. the most interesting fact here is that the k. four troops and nato have been trying to convince everybody that they only used rubber bullets and tear gas grenades against the angry mob to pacify them but doctors in local hospitals told us that they that those people who were injured in those clashes were delivered to hospitals carrying gunshot wounds to the room. seven men in heavy condition gunshot wounds fractures and bruises there were not
4:03 am
wounds from rubber bullets not a single of them had a rubber room all those wounds were caused by regular bullets which we extracted from their bodies now the serbs may have lost one of their checkpoints but they have lots more around the area we've counted more than ten different checkpoints the determination of the serb people is very strong to show that they do not want to be part of the course of a republic. they are telling us to leave but we have no way to leave this is because kosovo is our land our home and our life it seems to be on their own now will stand our ground. there has been very harsh international response on the actions of this week here in kosovo with the united states accusing the cost of a service of provoking violence and the russian foreign ministry expressing deepest concerns over the situation here saying that this may seem as a small as a minor border crossing dispute but in reality this could destabilize the situation
4:04 am
in the whole region. i mean if you ask your want to go there and as tamper a surprise yet again at a cost of all the presence of nato troops there may be becoming a stimuli for yet more violence rather than a barrier against it that's according to our pov it's a political analyst and belgrade. they've totally and openly stepped out of the un mandate and they're really really now just like during one nine hundred ninety nine during the bombing when there were the air force for the albanian separatists are now acting as their infantry so this is what we have this is a clear breach of the u.n. charter and of the resolution twelve forty four all they're doing right now is that they're actually. destabilizing the situation there actually bringing conflict. everything was reasonably peaceful until they gave the green light for albanian special police forces to forcibly take the administrative border back in

with russia and the u.s. in the universe. and from magic space down to mysterious earth the mass killings might stop by identifying creature have struck fear into a russian farmer some say that it's a vampire sucking out animals blood all the details are available our. human rights watch has called on libya's new government to stop its fires from abusing and torturing khadafi supporters the new york based group has visited twenty detention facilities in the capital tripoli and said some of the prisoners there were severely beaten and given electric shocks meanwhile thousands of civilians out in a coastal city of terror as revolutionary fighters intensify their fans of on the
4:11 am
remaining khadafi away lists heavy shelling and tank fire was heard on the eastern and western fronts nato planes were seen flying overhead aid agencies are ringing the alarm bell saying that the town is plunging into medicare in chaos with supplies of water power and foods restively low a red cross official in tripoli says being in turn only displaced people or i. the peas are in a desperate situation. but the situation inserts we have heard accounts of i.d.p.'s about. water and electricity being cut of and a lot of difficulties with the with the water supplies and with the access to food and access to medical supplies and medical health services we have not been able to have the guarantees from all the sides all the parties to the
4:12 am
conflict so we have no idea of what's going on right now in the city of sirte unfortunately what we do know is that there are a lot of i.d.p.'s coming out people are fleeing from the city of sirte passing through the tower bridge and many of these ideas have choosing to remain around as closely as possible to their hometown they are living in difficult conditions there are a lot of children and women also pregnant women who have difficult access to medical care so the situation is dire we are very concerned especially about their health situation right now. and for procrit obvious supporters the outlook seems graham robert perry from online investigative magazine consortium news says those who bag the colonel have no chance in the new libya because no one will protect them. it seems that the goal now is to simply
4:13 am
wipe out what's left of gadhafi forces and to bring the country under the control of the former rebels who are now recognized as the official government of libya in other words the people of the city the civilians happen to be on the side of khadafi are not going to be protected they're going to be punished how far they go with that it's unclear there may be efforts to negotiate some final surrender but clearly there's a great deal of suffering going on in these civilians are not being protected there is evidence even going back to the very beginning that the eastern part of libya was a hotbed of islamic radicalism some of these people have been connected to al qaida one of the al qaeda leaders who was killed recently a tia was a libyan and he came from this general area and now we know that one of the leaders of the rebel forces that took tripoli was also considered very close to all
4:14 am
fighting and was indeed detained by the united states for some time before he was allowed to go free so it appears that the people with the guns on the on the side of the libyan rebels and now the government are people who have this very mixed background and it's not clear how that also sorts out when you get down to the point of once the country is under the control of this of this force which side of this force will will be predominant. the u.s. backed military operation in libya still hasn't brought peace to the region despite as being its primary goal this as america's team and your presence in afghanistan still struggles to and the country's turmoil. that's probably another the top of. the problem is not that we know. the other so it's going to we have to stick to more and more americans and others going arcee asked people in the your whether they think the decade of finding work for their result. their harvest

thousands of indian farmers commit suicide is one of the driest seasons in the states the country. remains unfazed by the festering debt crisis in greece maintaining that greece should not cannot and will not default their message however is falling on increasingly deaf ears as leading economists investors and academics say it's inevitable the greeks meanwhile are mobilizing for a new mass rallies as government imposes begins to break the back of the country's economy and friends and jobs are free falling while taxes cuts soar all in an effort to satisfy e.u. demands in return for you have more debt in the form. and according to you will be in darkness and repeat for the u.k. dependent. obsession with the euro can only end in disaster. as far as the greek people concern out here is to the single currency means higher taxes lower government expenditure and the cuts in the standards of living and also for and
4:16 am
also even even for a country like germany in fact specifically a country like germany appearance of the single currency it means massive transfer payments paid to countries in southern europe and what's happening is that the germans are no longer putting up with it we shouldn't be where we are no and it is because of the fanaticism all of this european elite and we should look very carefully at what they have to say in the future these are all guilty. and they are discredited man what is very worrying is that as my as my father used to say to me when i was a young man he said if you make a financial guarantee the nature of five financial guarantees is that they get caught and there is a limit to how much even a country like germany can produce and of course a country like france is actually much much less and there will be a long term question marks over the credit credit worthiness of france and germany if the multiple trillions of your as which are required are actually paid up and called on. how was greeks up in arms about their government sponsored predicament

4:23 am
a lockie he was at best mid-level management of a.q. a.p. the greatest threat that he posed to united states were his online videos in. courage ing you know young english speaking muslims to join a jihad against the united states and that's that was despicable some could say it was hate speech or inciting violence but we have a way of dealing with people that engage in those kinds of activities particularly when they're u.s. citizens you don't just go out to sesame them there would have been a way to deal with a moral law that was not assassinating u.s. citizen without due process and i would love to see someone show evidence that he was posing a direct threat imminent threat to the united states which would have been required under the authorization for the use of military force to hit him in yemen. ghana stan marks ten years since the u.s. invasion but as artie's laurie harkness found out u.s. citizens still don't believe this war story will have a happy ending. it's
4:24 am
been ten years since the u.s. bombed afghanistan as a prelude to an ongoing war a decade later has it been worth it this week let's talk about that for wars as no benefit so what are they still doing there for ten years i don't know what the hell . they do and i don't know it's probably another vietnam. war where the problem is not a we're not. going to win it's just a case of more and more americans and others dying it seems clear cut see that it's not worth it i don't see a goal and really see anything changing even if we stay there another hundred years it was worth it to hunt down al qaeda but i think we did there at the start with our special forces and for the past nine years i don't think we've accomplished much at all a very controversial question and there's pros and cons to the situation what are the pros the pros is i think that we have to make
4:25 am
a statement that we aren't able to. say things sitting down that we have a voice and whether it's there's more peaceful ways to present that probably how does it go on for ten years that you take a stand for ten years it's a hornet's nest there's no winner over there we have great states we're in there with them but what do we have to do. well eventually we got to bring peace and i mean that's such a nebulous thing right like why we really bringing peace to afghanistan well only time will tell you know i don't really know enough about it to say whether it was worth it don't you think that's crazy that your country's been at war for ten years and you don't know anything about it that is a problem. do you think most americans feel that way you know i'm sure a lot of americans there but you're pro and anti i look at this so i mean for for a war there for that long i mean it better be for something and we better be good. it's a bit out of it do you think that's going to happen now it seems like most people
